Herdsmen Are Now In Finland - Bbc by donjon: 9:00am On Feb 12, 2018
Locals in central Finland are campaigning to have reindeer corralled all year round in a dispute with traditional herders.
In what's been described by national broadcaster Yle as a "reindeer rebellion", people living in North Ostrobothnia and Kainuu regions want tighter restrictions on herding, because they say that the free-range animals are damaging their crops and forests and harming their livelihoods.
While the indigenous Sámi use traditional herding areas in the north of the country, people living to the south of Lapland want tighter controls on the animals, and have been taking to social media to press their case.
It's a controversy that has raged through the years, but has reared its head after the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry launched a survey recently on the regulation of reindeer herds, the
Aamulehti news website reports.
One of the campaigners, Helena Hietarinta, tells Aamulehti that many locals are afraid to speak out about rogue reindeer amid fears of threats and retaliation.
However, groups representing the reindeer herders say that they too have been on the receiving end of abuse and vandalism.
"People do not look after their livestock, as the law obliges," Hietarinta says. Instead, "Reindeer herding blatantly violates the constitution in many respects," she says.
The 'great devil'
According to the current regulations, reindeer in herding areas have freedom to roam, but should not be able to access agricultural or forest land without the landowner's permission.
Outside of the northern Sámi homeland, reindeer herders are obliged to build fences to contain their animals, and are liable for damage to private property.
The reindeer problem has split Finnish social media. One Aamulehti reader posts that "the reindeer is a great devil. It annoys me when reindeer are used for tourist marketing. I would like an absolute ban."
But another says that fencing in the reindeer would upset the natural order: "If the reindeer are removed from the forests, many wolves, bears and other animals will die from hunger, or visit gardens to pick up dogs and cats," the poster says ominously.

This shows there is nothing particularly religious about herdsmen / farmers clashes, it's just competition for resources and common sense should prevail.
Any herdsman responsible for killings and arson should be prosecuted and any farmer or local stealing cows or killing herdsmen should be punished.
But overall free ranging belongs to the past and massive training and empowerment should be made available to herdsmen and farmers on modern agricultural methods to make better use of our natural resource.

The problem is hardly religions but symptom of a failed state and lack of proactive government over the past decades.

Think of it, how many well educated Fulanis do you see driving cattle all over? One key remains getting Fulani kids and all other Nigerian kids educated.

if the fulanis stick to no open grazing there wouldn't be a scenario of cattle rustling, you don't expect the cows to destroy crops and the farmers act as its fine. the way their cow is important so the farmers crop

There are arguably herdsmen in all countries, But they are certainly not fulani. They will not be allowed by Government, to make incursion into farmlands unchecked, brandishing high calibre weapons, let alone cities!
These countries still place a premium on human lives where skirmishes are prevented at all costs.

PS.. just thinking alloud where this country will fall in terms of development; Developing, Underdeveloped or Undeveloped! undecided

Another lie to make the fulani herdsmen killers look innocent.

The original title is Reindeer rebellion' in central Finland

According to the current regulations, reindeer in herding areas have freedom to roam, but should not be able to access agricultural or forest land without the landowner's permission.

Outside of the northern Sámi homeland, reindeer herders are obliged to build fences to contain their animals, and are liable for damage to private property

This is what the Nigerian government should do but because the leaders are mostly dumb, they will never enact the laws to protect the owners of the land and their crops.

If your cows damage properties, they should be made to pay for damages or the herdsmen will get arrested
